German Corner

GERMAN “WANDERN”

This week my German II class is exploring another interesting aspect of German culture: “wandern”. I know “wandern” sounds suspiciously like “wandering” in English, but it actually is translated as “hiking”. You all have heard the song “The Happy Wanderer”. Well…it refers to a happy hiker…not someone who is lost and glad about it. Suffice it so say that the Germans LOVE to hike. Hiking is one of the most popular past times in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Germans spend billions of Euros each year on hiking, hiking equipment, and hiking vacations. 200,000 kilometers of hiking trails and hiking areas span Germany alone and, when the weather is nice (or not), the Germans are out in force enjoying the outdoors and refreshment and food at the end of the trail. Germans hike for fun, for stress relief, to stay fit, or just to commune with nature. There are hiking clubs in every town and region and the DWV or German Hiking Association (Deutsche Wanderverein) is a national organization. Whether your preference is hiking in the Alps, along the Rhein River, or along the North Sea coast, you will find joyful Germans hiking and singing as they enjoy the beauty of their country. If you have a student in German II, ask them about “wandern”. I’m sure they will fill your ear with many fun facts. Viel Spaß beim wandern.
